Cumberland County News

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WNCN) — First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence will visit Fort Bragg on Monday morning.

The two women “will receive demonstrations of special operations capabilities, tour the base facilities, and receive a briefing on the selection and training of America’s most elite special operators,” according to a press release from the White House.

The visit was scheduled in part because April is the month of the military child. They plan to visit with students who live on post.

Before leaving, the First Lady will speak to military personnel and families to thank them for their service and sacrifice, the release said.

“Our military is the embodiment of our Nation’s spirit and the protector of our freedoms,” said First Lady Melania Trump in the press release.  

“Our nation’s military service members and their families deserve our care and respect,” Second Lady Karen Pence said. “I am always honored to have the opportunity to spend time with those who serve and work tirelessly to protect our freedoms.”

The release did not provide a specific time for their arrival.
